Skylanders' toy and video game mash-up is quite addictive, and now Disney is lining up characters from its impressive stock for Disney Infinity.

Pick up a toy, put it on the "Infinity Base" (sold in a starter pack with three figures) and hey presto, that character turns up in a Disney-themed game (Monsters University or Pirates of the Caribbean, for example).

The Incredibles, Wreck-It Ralph, Jack Sparrow, Buzz Lightyear - they're all there. And with rumours the Marvel and Star Wars universes could be added, Disney has made itself a money-printing machine.
